there is a "check" plug on the bottom of the trans pan. remove it while the engine is running and warm. if fluid leaks out, its overfull. simply let it leak until it stops and the level will be correct. if nothing comes out, add fluid through the fill hole (15/16" plug on the drivers side of the trans.)while the engine is still running. when it starts to come out of the check plug hole, its full. stop filling with fluid and let the excess fluid drain out the check hole until it stops. replug both and your'e done! ***IMPORTANT*** this trans requires WS (world standard) atf. anything but will cause poor shifting and possible damage to the transmission!

Your transmission's filter may be clogged, you may be low on transmission fluid, or the transmission may need repair or replacement.

If this doesn't help the transmission may actually be damaged and may need repair or replacement.

The torque convertor uses transmission fluid and is filled by the transmission's internal pump. When you start out with a new convertor, it's a good idea to put a quart of fluid in before installing it on the transmission. When the transmission dipstick shows full, the convertor is also full. An empty torque convertor holds several quarts, depending on the size.
